After taking a 2-0 lead in the NBA Playoffs against the Pacers, LeBron James wasn't too concerned about the postseason series. After the game, James talked about how he was upset about missing Coachella, the music festival going on this week.
LeBron: "I feel like I should have been at Coachella." His teammates called him out. LeBron: "What? S--- looked like fun. I like fun"— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) April 18, 2017
Imagine getting swept and your opponent is just talking about how he should be at coachella https://t.co/XgtLWZgOd8— Never Been Rooked (@Ryan_Mourton) April 18, 2017
While it's important not to taketoomuch away from this quote, it is a little revealing as to James' mindset. He's not worried about the Pacers, even though Indiana has given Cleveland its money's worth in the first two games. But despite the close calls, the Cavs have a comfortable series lead.
Add on to that the fact James has won 19 straight first-round games, and it's easy to understand why he's upset about missing Kendrick Lamar's Coachella set.
His quote is somewhat similar to something James said back in last year's playoff series against the Raptors. The series had been tied 2-2, and after a blowout victory in Game 5 James said, "I've been a part of some very adverse situations and I just didn't believe that this was one of them."
